NPB Roundup 12/9: Seabol returns to Carp; Swallows sign Ricky Barrett

by on Dec.09, 2008 @ 7:55 am, under NPB

Sanspo: The Hirsohima Carp are preparing to give Scott Seabol a 1-year extension worth 38.5M yen. His uniform number will change from 25 to 57.

Sponichi: The Seibu Lions have announced that Dave Okubo will be Head of the Pro Group in the front office (編成部プロ担当). I'm not quite sure what that will entail, but that's where he'll be next season.

Daily Sports: The Yakult Swallows have signed Ricky Barrett to a 1-year, 50M yen contract plus bonuses. The Swallows hold an option for a second year. He will be wearing number 18 next season.

    For what it’s worth, in addition to striking out better than a batter per inning, Barrett is also a bit of a fly ball pitcher. His groundball percentage from the last few years:

    ’08: 35%
    ’07: 35.9%
    ’06: 46.7 %

    Interesting. I guess this is where it would help if we knew what kind of ballpark Jingu Stadium was.
